 Khalil Herbert, Virginia Tech, Player News


  The Chicago Bears drafted former Virginia Tech running back Khalil Herbert with the No. 33 (No. 217 overall) pick in the sixth round on Saturday afternoon. Herbert is the first Tech running back drafted since David Wilson was drafted in the first round of the 2012 draft by the New York Giants. There were only four running backs taken in the first three rounds and only two - Alabama running back Najee Harris (No. 24 by Pittsburgh) and Clemson running back Travis Etienne (No. 25 by Jacksonville) - went in the opening round. Herbert was the 14th running back taken overall. He led the ACC with 1,791 all-purpose yards last fall and had 1,182 yards with eight touchdowns and ranked second in the conference averaging 7.68 yards per carry (sixth nationally). - Roanoke Times

  2020 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL THIRD TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): RB - Khalil Herbert, Virginia Tech, 109,...The first Tech player to gain 1,000 yards rushing since 2015, Herbert, nicknamed 'Juice' led the Hokies' potent rushing attack with 1,182 yards on the ground on 154 attempts. His 7.68 yards per carry ranked second in the conference and sixth nationally. After going for 100 or more yards in each of his first four games for the Hokies, Hebert finished the season with six such efforts after totaling 162 yards and a TD against Virginia (12/12). He had a season-best 207 rushing yards at Duke (10/10) as part of his record- breaking day that saw him accumulate 357 all-purpose yards. - Virginia Tech Football

  Khalil Herbert ran for 162 yards, including a 76-yard touchdown, and Virginia Tech ended a four-game slide with a 33-15 victory against rival Virginia on Saturday night. The Hokies (5-6, 5-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) also got a big play from Tayvion Robinson, who turned a short pass from Braxton Burmeister into a 60-yard TD, a scoring run from wide receiver Tre Turner and four field goals from Brian Johnson to regain the Commonwealth Cup. Virginia (5-5, 4-5) had its four-game win streak end. The Cavaliers drove 75 yards for a touchdown and a 7-3 lead with their first possession, but managed just 71 yards the rest of the half while the Hokies scored all five times they had the ball to lead 27-7 at halftime.

Turner's 6-yard run capped a 17-play drive to give the Hokies a 10-7 lead, and after Johnson's second field goal and a Virginia punt, Herbert bolted off the right side and raced untouched down the center of the field for his longest run of the season. On Virginia Tech's next possession, with halftime looming, Burmeister hit Robinson along the Hokies sideline, he spun away from cornerback De'Vante Cross and raced down the sideline, scoring 31 seconds before the half. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Virginia Tech and Khalil Herbert were absolutely dominating this aspect of games earlier this season. Herbert ran for 592 yards in his first four games, before suffering a hamstring injury. He's had just 428 yards in the six games since. But in Saturday's loss to Clemson, Herbert ran for 96 yards and a score. If center Brock Hoffman can lead the offensive line without committing major penalties, this can be a dominant unit again. - Richmond Times-Dispatch

  Virginia Tech running back Khalil Herbert's kickoff return with 9:46 left in the first quarter was his first and only play of the game. A few minutes after the 12-yard return a Tech spokesperson confirmed Herbert was ruled out for the rest of the game with a hamstring injury. The Kansas transfer came into the game with 803 rushing yards (8.4 yards per carry) with six touchdowns. Coach Justin Fuente was tight-lipped about Hebert's status in his post game press conference. "He played one play and his hamstring was bothering him," Fuente said. "It's been a little bit of an issue for a little while." Tech relied on quarterback Hendon Hooker to power the team's rushing attack in the loss. Hooker ran the ball 20 times (one shy of his career high) for 156 yards. Rutgers transfer Raheem Blackshear had nine carries for 33 yards and Jalen Holston had one carry for 12 yards. - Roanoke Times

  By now, you've heard about Herbert's skills running the football. He's second in the nation in yards per carry (8.36), fourth in rushing yards per game (133.8) and has rushed for at least 100 yards in five of six games. Those eye-popping numbers have him in consideration for postseason honors as one of the nation's top tailbacks. What gets lost in his ability to be an explosive running back is what he brings in the kickoff return game, which is why he is among the national leaders in all-purpose yards per game (nearly 206). Herbert is averaging 31.8 yards on 10 kickoff returns, and he's been able to give the Hokies good starting field position when he's able to return a kickoff. When Herbert is able to touch the ball, he has proven he can make something happen. - Lynchburg News and Advance

  Kansas graduate transfer Khalil Herbert is averaging an FBS-best 148 yards rushing for Virginia Tech. Herbert had a 291-yard performance in 2017, but had just three 100-yard outings in 35 career games with Kansas. He's already had four with the Hokies and had 357 all-purpose yards – most in FBS this year – at Duke. - AP College Football

  Former KU running back Khalil Herbert has proven to be a welcome addition for both the offense and special teams at Virginia Tech this year. Herbert, a graduate transfer who left KU four games into the 2019 season, currently leads all FBS players not only in rushing yards per game (149.7), but also all-purpose yardage (246.3 yards per game). Through the Hokies' first three games, Herbert is averaging 10.4 yards per carry on his 14.3 rushing attempts a game and has scored five touchdowns on the ground. Herbert has topped 100 rushing yards in all three VT games in 2020, matching the number of times he did so at KU during his three-plus years with the program. - Lawrence Journal World

  Khalil Herbert seems to be feeling right at home at Virginia Tech, moving to the top of the national rushing chart with his stellar performance against Duke. Herbert carried 20 times for 208 yards and two touchdowns in the 38-31 win and entered this week averaging 156 per game. Herbert also had 150 kick return yards against Duke. His 358 all-purpose yards were a program record and the highest total in the nation this season. The 5-foot-9, 212-pound Herbert is playing his final season as a graduate transfer. He planned to redshirt at Kansas last season after Pooka Williams took the starting job from him following the second game. Herbert ultimately decided to leave and enrolled at Tech in January. He was productive in his 35 games with the Jayhawks. He ran for 291 yards against West Virginia in 2017 and for 187 against Boston College in 2019. - AP College Football

  Khalil Herbert ran for 208 yards and two touchdowns, including a 60-yard score with 2:20 left, to help shorthanded Virginia Tech hold off Duke for a 38-31 win on Saturday. The Kansas graduate transfer's huge day included an 83-yard kickoff return that set up a short third-quarter scoring drive for the Hokies (2-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Herbert's other score was a 23-yard sprint around the left side to the end zone for a 31-21 lead with 9:58 left. Braxton Burmeister also scored on two keepers for Virginia Tech, which was down 21 players and two full-time coaches due to a combination of coronavirus and injury issues. The Hokies' defense also came up big by forcing a three-and-out after Burmeister lost a fumble to give Duke a chance for the lead with 4 1/2 minutes left. Herbert took care of the rest, breaking loose around the left side again for the 60-yarder for a 38-28 lead while cracking the 200-yard mark to essentially seal this one. Deon Jackson scored twice on the ground for the Blue Devils (0-4, 0-4), including when he shot up the middle for a 10-yard score that gave Duke a 14-10 lead with 11:27 left in the third. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football
